About My Partner :)

I was the cutie bridesmaid for her mom's wedding. I know her since her baby years. I once spent my school holiday in her house, and I remember we got along very well despite our age gap. I was already a fourth grader, she and her younger sister were even not in kindergarten yet! But it was one memorable holiday.

Since we lived in different cities, I only watched her from afar. Sometimes I heard comments how similar she was to the little me: the way we talked, our serak-serak basah voice, how we would sink ourselves in books, and so on. And yes, once in a while when I did have the opportunity to meet her, I could see my reflection in her.

Then I saw the almost completely changed her after she was already in high school. She was stunningly pretty, very feminine, and looked very mature and pulled together. We met in family gatherings (you can imagine how often, I'm Batak!), family weddings, etc. But it is only after we live together here that I get to know her better. We apparently share a lot of things, though we are in totally opposing poles when it comes to certain issues. Practically we have become an item, a "couple": I pay the rents and bills, she takes care of the house, hehehe... She is also my best friend, with whom I talk about problems, asks for advices, seeks opinions. I trust her wisdom and maturity.

We went out last night to celebrate her birthday. It was fun. Though we'd only take the ordinary route (i.e. downtown), we acted like we were going somewhere fancy. We wore nice clothes, glowing make up, pointed and high heel shoes, cute bags. We picked an Italian restaurant (I've been dreaming about lasagna lately), and though we had to wait for half an hour to get a table, it was a perfect choice. The light was dim, our table was near the window where we could see the rain pouring down outside, and light jazz music aired the room, accentuated by the voices of people talking. The ambience was superb. And of course, as usual, we had a great conversation.

Happy birthday to you, my lovely niece. I hope you enjoyed our "girls' night out" as much as I did, and I do hope that this special day of yours could jollify your time. Thank you for being my best friend, and I pray always for you.
